Chocolate-Frosted Saltines

"To some, this may sound odd, but I grew up on this simple treat. Sweet and salty is one of my favorite combos. Use your favorite saltines and chocolate frosting for this. Serving size is totally approximate, as it depends on how much frosting you like on each saltine and how many saltines each person eats. Makes a great snack or dessert. Kid- and adult-friendly."

  1. I gave this recipe 5 stars. I love saltines with vanilla frosting. I actually use vanilla frosting recipe posted here Recipe #216892 . This was one of my favorite teen snacks. I can't wait to try chocolate frosting. Thanks christine (internetnut)
  2. This combination didn't sound odd to me at all since I love chocolate covered pretzels. The sweet and salty combo make a perfect pair. I used Duncan Hines classic chocolate frosting and found that you have to put a very small amount otherwise the chocolate overwhelms the saltine and you don't taste it at all. It is quick and easy which is a plus, but not something I'll make a regular snack. Thanks for sharing blancpage!
  3. Bought Duncan Hines Chocolate frosting and tried your suggestion. YUMMMMMMY!!!! Had to force myself to stop! Such a simple pleasure to whip up! Thanks


Newest update March 28, 2008; I am so grateful and excited. A wonderful, generous, kind anonymous person gifted me with PM and I can't wait to use all the features. Thank you! I might add a couple notes or links to my page here such as forums I frequent, fave searches, and helpful info. Update March 2008: I was given the opportunity to join my very first recipe swap (I added the banner below, thanks Um Safia) This swap was really fun, interesting, and helpful. Lots of great recipes to choose from and lots of exposure for my own. I thought I'd update this a bit. It's April of 2007 already (wow!) and I might have written the stuff below at least a year ago, and longer. I live in AZ, with a roommate and a nice boyfriend. My roommate has only tried my cooking once, but my bf, bless his heart, tries really hard to tolerate it, lol! He's a good cook in his own right, but me, I'm still a newbie cook at heart. I still enjoy 'zaar and sometimes spend hours and hours on here, as it's still friendly, helpful, and interesting. :) Also, this is late in saying, but I'm supposed to be on an IBS-safe diet consisting of no dairy, egg yolks, caffeine, red meat, too much fat, everything I love, etc.... so I'm working on it, it's taking me years and years, but I've incorporated this kind of diet into my other eating, and if my tummy gets mad at me, well, I only have me to blame. :/ I've been married for almost two years and it's the first time I get to really cook for someone other than myself. (Hehe, I signed up with here not too long after I wrote this, now I'm separated - not because of my cooking lol - but surprisingly found myself again, acting as 'housewife'.) I'm not a great cook, but I do follow after my mother, who tends to estimte her ingredients and taste as she goes, but she and my sister are two of the best cooks I know. The best rule of thumb for seasonings is always add too little, you can always add more, but can't always take away if there's too much. I mostly try other recipes I find, but now and then experiment with whatever I have available if I can't get to the store or am broke, and sometimes come up with pretty good recipes. I also have a hard time cooking usually, it takes me longer than most people as I am legally blind and have no depth perception so sometimes it's hard for me to measure and prepare food. Any of the recipes I post might be estimated unless otherwise stated. Sorry for the inconvenience. :) I found this place doing one of my recipe searches. It looks like a fun place to get recipes. Take care all and happy cooking! :) <a href="¤t=curriedcurrajongs.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> Helpful Link for Cookbook help:
